For the second year in a row, Shasta Regional Medical Center has been named one of the nation’s top 100 hospitals by Truven Health Analytics.
The Truven study has been conducted since 1993 and evaluates performance in 10 areas: mortality; medical complications; patient safety; average patient stay; expenses; profitability; patient satisfaction; adherence to clinical standards of care; post-discharge mortality; and readmission rates for heart attack, heart failure, and pneumonia.
“This recognition – which we have received for the second consecutive year – shows that we are successfully and consistently achieving top quality results in patient care and satisfaction, said Cyndy Gordon, Shasta Regional’s CEO. “We have accomplished this award through the hard work, dedication and excellent patient care that our physicians, nurses and staff provide.”
Shasta Regional was also named as one of the 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals in the U.S. for superior inpatient performance in cardiovascular services, by Truven Health Analytics in 2013.
Only 10 California community hospitals made the 100 Top hospital list, eight of which are owned by Prime Healthcare Services — the parent company of Shasta Regional Medical Center.
